“Talk of ‘Civil War,’ Ignited by Mar-a-Lago Search, Is Flaring Online”

According to this article in The New York Times, in the hours after the FBI seized documents from Mar-a-Lago, social media saw a marked increase in posts that mentioned “civil war,” a trend that has only escalated in recent weeks. It remains to be seen what this extreme rhetoric will mean for the November midterms and for the longterm health of our democracy.

“The Ongoing Electoral Efforts to up the Anti-Democratic Ante”

Important New Yorker article on the difficulties that election administrators face going into the midterm elections. Election administration has been a challenge because of newly enacted voting restrictions enacted by Republican-led legislatures and, importantly, the enforcement of some of those restrictions by private groups primarily made up of election deniers. For example, these groups used these new restrictions to challenge significant numbers of voters during the primaries, and these challenges will likely escalate in the midterm elections this fall. While these challenges usually fail, they may nonetheless intimidate some minority voters from voting.

Election administrators have already faced an unprecedented number of death threats and intimidation tactics in the wake of the 2020 election. This article details the many other ways in which their lives have been complicated since that pivotal election.
